Greetings Grade 5 Families,

It is that time of year where we starting planning classes for the Bayside Band program! Usually we tour each of the elementary feeder schools and put on a demonstration concert encouraging the students to sign up. However this year we have had to adapt to the current situation and make this process available online. 

Does your child have an interest in music?
Is he/she creative?
Interested in learning a new language?
Keen to learn a musical instrument?
Love to perform?

Join the award-winning band program at Bayside Middle School for Grade 6!

No experience necessary! 
Students just need to have a willingness to learn and the dedication to practice regularly at home.

Please watch this brief introduction video for further information.

Online registration opens at 9am April 30th and goes until 5pm May 6th. 
Classes always fill very quickly (within two days usually) and a wait-list is often necessary. 
Sign up early to avoid disappointment!

Band students love being part of the band as they get to:
~Perform for Family and Friends,
~Compete in Festivals,
~Travel and go on Tours,
~Be part of a Team,
~Play Fun Games in class--music stand decorating contest, jeopardy, Scale Olympics, Music Bingo, and Band Karate to name a few...

Please note, Band is a commitment for the entire school year
Band is backed with PE half-time.
Band students alternate weeks with Band and PE 
(3 classes of Band week 1, and 3 classes of PE week 2)
